Atlanta or Bust

"Great girlfriends are like getting to choose sisters"
- unknown

I took Adrian and Preston to visit my oldest friend Rachel in Atlanta. It's always so much fun to reminisce and have some good girl time. We have known each other since we were 5. We lived right down the street from one another for about 13 years. Those kinds of friends are few and far between but are certainly cherished.

The drive both ways was long... but good, kids were great, but I curse the Cracker Barrel right now! I've been home for 24 hours and have had 20 hrs of dreadful food poisoning. The kind of sickness that you contemplate whether or not you'll even survive. I know it was the salad I ate there on the way home. It's the only thing the kids didn't share with me. What a welcome home, huh?!? Obviously, I have survived it and am on the road to recovery right now :)

I thought I'd take it way back with a 5th grade picture and then this past week... 21 years later! 
Rachel got a "hot-mom" Sephora makeover this night. That place is great. We could have stayed there for days... really! But we thought 2 hours was enough.

we crammed a lot of fun stuff into our trip...
we had a campfire for the boys
 we went swimming

we went to a really cool children's museum in Atlanta called Imagine It.

we played outside... a lot

and we went to Centennial Olympic Park downtown. The kids loved the fountains. I felt like we were in NY City or something, not that I've been, but imagined it might be a fraction of the likeness of the big apple.

Stomach sickness is the absolute WORST! I'm glad to hear you're on the road to recovery though! <3 You all look like you had a BLAST!
